We've secured a fantastic new venue located only 30 mins from DC, which features a beautiful lake and a picturesque Virginia countryside. Our lineup boasts the best and most eclectic local and regional artists the area has to offer. And the best part, no more camping fees! Cosmic Campout is an exploration into the space of multi-genre music and arts. The festival promotes imagination and the convening of creativity by offering a landscape that allows these to flourish. By weaving together threads of local, artistic talent, accomplished musicians and professional staff, Cosmic Campout hopes to assist in shaping the ever-evolving art scene. The vision is to assemble divergent scenes into one collective consciousness that provides not only a rich community experience but two days of peace in a wild world. As the artists and locations grow and shape with the years, we hope to continue the exploration into love and respect through the guidance of music and art. Gathering with others is an ancient practice, a part of our flesh and bones. Cosmic Campout aims to keep that practice alive through the mystical power of the arts.
